In addition to poor installation, poorly sprayed foam can lead to mold growth and rot and may affect the roof covering of a property. This can result in a roof replacement cost that will be passed on to future homeowners or mortgage lenders.

This will in turn reduce the risk of costly roof repairs for new homeowners and potential mortgage applicants.
